Release 0.14 of the Open Clip Art Library (www.openclipart.org) is now available for download on-line as an individual package consisting of 3415 images submitted by over 200 artists from around the globe.
The project has progressed much this month on the future core of the Open Clip Art Library, the Document Management System (DMS) and more infrastructure has been implemented for the website due to user-demand. In addition to the aggregration of developer blogs at Planet OpenClipArt (http://planet.openclipart.org/), the project is now using the freedesktop.org provided bugzilla bug tracker (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?product=openclipart.org) to focalize feature requests and bug reports related to clip art, dms, the website, and other concerns. And, in response to people having difficulty contacting developers, there is now a contact form on the main project page.
With regards to the Open Clip Art Library’s growing release size, there is now an SVG-only package. And, for all those Windows users out there, the project is now providing a Windows installer that supports 40 languages and allows users to install and uninstall versions of the library package safely and securely.
Now is the time to contribute artwork to the library and help develop the infrastructure which allows for easy clip art distribution. All summer the project is looking for summer themed artwork. What a great time to get out of the heat and lend a hand to the ongoing development for the project. Or, go outside and get some inspiration for making some artwork for submission.
